't need a turnaround. we have a campaign tied to the incumbent president of the united states. >> reporter: friday he released his 2011 tax return. the campaign admitted romney did not claim nearly $2 million in deductions which he was entitled to which tax experts say could have lowered his rate to less than 10%. the romney campaign said it allowed him to fulfill a pledge that he'd never paid less than 13% in the last ten years. the romneys donated more than $4 million to charity but deducted only a portion of that ensuring the 14% tax rate. now the focus shifts to october 3rd, the first of three presidential debates. ahead of the first debate paul ryan and mitt romney are hitting the road through ohio, a state they hope to win but a state where they are trailing the president at the moment. >> ron mott on the trail for us tonight in orlando. ron, thanks. we want to bring in cnbc's chief washington correspondent john harwood. john, good evening. you heard mitt romney say he doesn't need a turnaround in the campaign. but aren't people suggesting that even in his party? >> reporter: absolut
